      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Anyone own one of these with a 5.4 , experiencing a slight hesitation upon acceleration? I was told this is normal. It's already had the PCM reprogrammed.

The driveby wirng throttle does have a slight hesitation on accel, and is considerd normal, but if you are concerned bring it in while there is warranty!

yea but you shouldnt notice a difference, the only difference is the pcm doesnt have to play catch up, its telling it what to do.. under some circumstances if it doesnt want to give hard throttle it wont, but you really shouldnt notice a difference. how bad is the hesitation?

ps its hard to diagnose without feeling it so bare with us

If all you are talking about is a slight hesitation, then this is normal, ford has a pcm reprogram that does address this issue, but from my expierence it didnt help much! It has been a complaint to some people, but to others they just got used to it! If it is a little more extreme, then I would get it looked at by a dealer.

I have an appt again on Monday. I could best describe it as a "stutter". Most noticeable around 30 mph. The dealer even suggested a high perf programmer. Just remember to put it back to factory specs before I bring it in for service. But I guess I just wanted to know if anybody else has been through this. It's aggravating to have technology come so far today, only to have a silly problem like this. In the "good ol' days" a guy just advanced the timing or fattened up the idle mix a bit.

I have an '04 with the same 5.4 as you and I also notice a hesitation or stutter sometimes around the 30mph mark. I rarely even notice it though. I still love the truck!

Yeah, I like the truck alot too, I've switched to fords this past summer. I Had a Sub and a Sierra, both with the famous piston slap, GM is known for. Other than this annoyance, I am very pleased. I will more than likely install an Edge Evolution programmer, since this seems to be "normal". I'll give the dealer one more chance, and then pull the trigger on the Edge. Thanks for all the input guys.

Just heads up on that programmer, most manufactures frown heavily upon people using these, ford included! If the dealer you brought it to recomended you to put one of these in your truck, they can get into some trouble for that. Im not telling you not to use it, but to use comon sense if you do. If you end up with engine damage or noise, or trans problems and ford knows you have one of these in your truck, you may have a hard time getting it waranteed! I know the people who sells you the programmer tells you that they cant void your waranty, but they can, I have seen it several times. And the programmer on gas vehicles, your not going to notice alot of change in power, or economy. If you buy one of them ask if your not satisfied in 2 weeks if you can return it, I bet you will return it, there isnt much difference.

Thanks for the heads up on that. The dealer said to return it to factory settings before any service. But the more I think about it, $500 to make a hesitation go away and lackluster results may just not make any sense. I know the programmer makers say they will improve across the board, but I haven't talked to any one who has accualy used it on a GAS engine.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
